INSPIRED BY FROGS

YA ALL, I rode down to the rodeo grounds about 10Pm here
Everybody in town was sleeping
Down in the Greasewood Creek the bullfrogs were creeping
Singing their throated deep songs
Until mama came on down along
The street by the park in the dark
And tried to croak too
They were silenced for a minute
By what they didn't know:

 
"Your just not in it
Go back to the rodeo
Go on ride that mud you almost fell in
(MUDDY COWBOYS BOOTS
FOR TOOTS)
Get your tail on home woman
We're not Princes you can friend
Go back fix your flags at the Rodeo Poles
Talk to the owl who flies
We know you miss a man in life
But we are not your "guys"

And the night calls..
RIBBIT

"In this creek, we live it
And we live as we can
Head them wheels back home
Now, mam"

"We got a show to do tonight
Go home to your artificial light
And play some music
Because 'cause the music do
Or we gonna croak the joy right outta you
Right outta you
Right on outta you"
"There's no one in this one horse town who'll do
The thangs you see fit
The things you see fit
So go on home sweet mama
As we're just bull frogs gettin' lit"
